French technology company Shadow has confirmed a data breach involving customers’ personal information. TechCrunch: The Paris-headquartered startup, which offers gaming through its cloud-based PC service, said in an email to customers this week that hackers had accessed their personal information after a successful social engineering attack targeted the company. “At the end of September, we were the victim of a social engineering attack targeting one of our employees,” Shadow CEO Eric Sele said in the email, seen by TechCrunch. “This highly sophisticated attack began on the Discord platform with the downloading of malware under cover of a game on the Steam platform, proposed by an acquaintance of our employee, himself a victim of the same attack.”

Shadow said that though its security team took unspecified “immediate action,” the hackers were able to connect to the management interface of one of the company’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers to obtain customers’ private data. That data includes full names, email addresses, dates of birth, billing addresses and credit card expiry dates. Shadow says no passwords or sensitive banking data were compromised.
